Hi there,
It's been long since I posted in the oil pastel forum.

I left mongolia at the end of January and I was in Kenya in February. Here are some sketches I did in Kenya.

Chicken at a backyard of local resident in western Kenya.

Pretty! I like the fresh feeling! They remind me country life. I like them.

Yusuke, I like everyone of them. How do you do the tree in the second one? Do you put the clouds in first and then put the green on top or do you do the tree first and then put white clouds around it? Or do you leave space for green?

Beautiful landscapes, I especially like the one of the chicken. . . beautifully done clouds/sky on the one of the tree.

My favorite is the last one. The purple flowers over the fence seems perfect for the scene. Nice job :)

Many thanks, all.

I painted the sky first. Then clouds. Branches and foliage were painted covering on the sky.

Cory,
The flowers are bougainvillea. I sketched this one at a yard of my friend's place. The houses in the picture are the neighbours.

So nice to see images of your travels, Yusuke. By now you certainly have a wonderful record of all the places you have been.
I love the freshness of all of these, sunny and warm. I especially like the last one alos.
